18WOS Extreme Trucker 2 problem. -
| posts: 626
I dont know how many people out there have ever played 18WOS games, but I love them. Iv played nearly all of them from Hard Truck 1. Its basically a trucking simulator, or tries to be. Its a cheapo game made by SCS who also make hunting games and stuff.
But Iv never had a problem with any of their games, they are cheaply made games but this new one I cant get to work. I just bought it for $20 (being the first one that Iv actually BOUGHT) and when I first put the CD in it would just spin forever when I tried to run the install. After waiting about an hour, literally, it finally ran the install. Very very slowly. Once it installed, I tried to run it. It just freezes up after about a minute or so and if I alt-tab out and back into it it will work for another minute and I have to continue the process to even play.
The game has both DirectX and OpenGL options, Iv ran it in both with all sorts of different settings with the same effect. Iv disabled HT on my cpu and that didnt solve the problem either.
It seems Im the only person having this problem with this game, and it seems to run fine on Windows 7 for other people.
I dont see why it would have any problem if I dont have a problem with any other 18WOS game since they have used the exact same graphics and physics engine for the past 10years its basically the same game with new areas/trucks/cargo and whatnot.
